Subject: Guitarists, prepare to be schooled.
I though the HK album from this year (which I still have on vinyl) was good, but I had no idea he or anyone could jam like this. The recording's not good, though.

Check this out for the
generous Dark Star offering.
Note: Second part of Dark Star goes into the Other ONE!!!

Also suggest -listen to their 2.11.89 available here at the Archive which gives you a larger sampling of their Grateful Dead work plus some very cool tunes like Fishing Hole, Ode to Billy Joe and Liberty Valance (The later is smoking hot!)

I can't remember how I stumbled across this one, but man it's really interesting stuff. It's gotten a number of repeated listenings with me. I really like the People Don't Change. It's really, uh, 80's, I guess. And after all that mindbending jamming, a sweet and tender take on Little Drummer Boy to close? Beautiful. I mean it's just so weird, how can you not love this performance?

Subject: w/ Fred Frith
stumbled upon this almost as if by accident. henry kaiser is an out-an-out outrageous guitarist, and his work with Fred Frith ranks among the best ever put out by any artist, bar none except maybe Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck, which he ranks right up there with. this recording is proof of that, and his version of dark star puts him shoulder to shoulder with Jerry Garcia, God rest his soul.

This "Dark Star" is true to it's roots and yet original in it's jam, with "Other One" flavors in the second half. "People Don't Change" is just plain strange. And "Little Drummer Boy" is very traditional. All in all I loved this short set!

The recording is in excelent condition.
